Hillary Releases 'Stronger Together' to Coincide With Cancelled Speeches

Hillary Clinton's new book Stronger Together was released on September 6th with dismal sales. According to the New York Times, the first week a total of 3,000 copies were sold. To put that in perspective, Bill O'Reilly's new book, Killing the Rising Sun, sold 103,000 copies the first day.

"I've never even heard of it. It was released September 6th, supposed to coincide with a number of Stronger Together speeches. Oh, these were the ones that she was supposed to give those important speeches. And she had pneumonia," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Now it was all beginning to make sense.

"So it was her pneumonia that caused the sales to be so bad," Glenn said.

"You mean that she was overheated or dehydrated," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

"Or pneumonia," Glenn insisted.

"She won't drink water, this woman," Stu said.

"Except she drinks a lot of water," Co-host Pat Gray added.

"Right. Don't try telling her to drink her water, I'll tell you that," Stu said.

"Except when she's drinking water," Glenn added.

"You don't have to tell her because she drinks it all the time," Pat confirmed.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Ooh. Ooh. Hillary Clinton's new book Stronger Together.

JEFFY: Nice!

GLENN: It's out now. First week of sales, New York Times, said they sold 3,000 copies.

STU: Wow, that's great.

JEFFY: Congratulations.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: 3,000 copies.

GLENN: 3,000 copies.

PAT: Remember when she got an $8 million advance from that book a few years ago?

GLENN: So that one only sold 85,000 copies in the first week.

PAT: Altogether? Oh, in the first week.

GLENN: In the first week.

PAT: Okay. Which is decent, but not --

GLENN: No, that's pretty good. In today's --

PAT: It wasn't today's --

GLENN: Eh, it's close. You know, it was probably like -- it's probably like your first week selling 50,000 copies now.

PAT: 3,000 copies though --

GLENN: We used to sell -- you know, ten years ago, you could sell --

JEFFY: I'll bet you 2,000 of it was the foundation.

PAT: Well, Bill said -- we interviewed Bill O'Reilly about his book, and he said he sold 103,000 in the first week.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: That's really good.

PAT: For today, that's incredible.

GLENN: For today. Yeah.

STU: And to be clear, I think he said he sold 103,000 in the first day.

PAT: Oh, did he really?

STU: Because the book came out Tuesday, right? The first week is not even over yet. I think he said it was the first day.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Wow.

PAT: Wow. Wow.

GLENN: Wow. Yeah, he's a machine. He is absolutely a machine.

PAT: Impressive. Really is.

STU: Sort of unfair to compare anyone to Bill O'Reilly's book sales at this point.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. But, still, he is a machine. So that's what we -- we used to do, you know -- I think Common Sense did what? 130 --

PAT: I know. Back in the day. 128.

GLENN: 128 the first day, I think.

PAT: I think it was the first minute and a half.

GLENN: I think it was before it went on sale. They're all at a Trump warehouse at this point.

JEFFY: You're saying this to Milo's prediction.

GLENN: Yeah. It's amazing. Because Vince Flynn, at the end -- I mean, Vince Flynn was one of the greatest booksellers ever. And Vince was -- he came up and he was like, "Man, you just sell books like crazy." And I'm like, "Shut up, Vince Flynn." He's like, "No, it's not the days of Tom Clancy." And it's not even the days of Vince Flynn now.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: It's not. That's what makes J.K. Rowling's book sales so unbelievably impressive. 450 million copies of that series when you have a tough time selling 3,000.

GLENN: Yeah, 400 to 700,000 copies sold in one book. The days of million seller books --

PAT: Used to happen all the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Well, from major books. Major authorize.

GLENN: Yeah. They rarely, rarely happen. You sell 400 to 700,000 books, that is a wildly successful book.

PAT: And she has over this time sold 450 million copies.

GLENN: That is crazy. And Hillary Clinton's new book in the first week sold 3,000 copies.

PAT: That's --

JEFFY: A little way to catch up to J.K.

PAT: A little ways.

GLENN: Stronger Together. Look at it, New York Times.

PAT: You know, if it catches fire in the next couple days, she could be up to 3500 by the end of the month.

GLENN: Yeah, at the end of the month.

(chuckling)

GLENN: She's got to give them away at like Waffle Houses and stuff.

PAT: Well, yeah, there's some work to do between now and then, but still.

GLENN: I've never even heard of it. It was released September 6th. Supposed to coincide with the number of Stronger Together speeches. Oh, these were the ones she was supposed to give those important speeches. And she had pneumonia.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: So it was her pneumonia that caused the sales to be so bad.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: You mean that she was overheated or dehydrated.

GLENN: Or pneumonia.

STU: She won't drink water, this woman.

PAT: Except she drinks a lot of water.

STU: Right. Don't try telling her to drink her water, I'll tell you that.

GLENN: Except when she's drinking water

PAT: You don't have to tell her because she drinks it all the time.

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.
